With the holidays on the way you may be looking for unique and interesting gifts for people on your list. If you have a friend or relative who loves organization, consider choosing a gift that is useful as well as necessary. You can find plenty of fun choices for everyone on your list and there is sure to be something in every possible price range. Media storage is a problem that many people need to tackle. Consider giving a media cabinet or CD wall rack to hold all the stray media.
For the woman with a lot of jewelry, consider a jewelry box or upright jewelry valet. Jewelry boxes provide lots of space to hold rings, earrings, necklaces, and watches. A nice jewelry box looks great and helps keep jewelry orderly and in a place where it won’t get lost. Families today are loaded with media devices, cords, and chargers. Make life easier by giving cord organizers and a recharge station. A recharge station is a convenient place for families to store and charge their devices when not in use. Another great item is the car key and cell phone caddy, a unit that can safely keep everything in one easy place so you’ll never misplace your keys or phone again.
Most people spend a lot of time in their cars so keeping them organized is essential. Think about giving a back seat car organizer or other unit that will easily corral loose items and keep them handy for both drivers and passengers. Parents will love help keeping their children organized in the car. A kid’s car organizer has various pockets and sections to keep toys and food items safe and secure yet within easy reach. The top serves as a desk for children to draw or color to keep them busy.
Secret Santa is a time-honored tradition at many offices and for good reason. Using this system lets your whole office participate in holiday gift giving without breaking the bank or offending anyone. Being a good secret Santa takes some practice and finding the perfect gift isn’t always easy. Staying within the allotted budget can sometimes be challenging so it’s important that you start thinking about the gift as soon as you receive the person’s name. Think about the person you’re buying for and consider their personality as well as some of their hobbies and interests. This will make shopping a lot easier.
You’ll want to find out the allotted budget for the gift and try to stay within a few dollars of it. Most times the budget is $15 or $20. For wine lovers, consider an opener and wine set in a fun wine-shaped box. Those who commute to work in their car will enjoy some type of car organizer such as a cell cup that holds a cell phone and fits snugly in the cup holder. Another nice gift for men or women is an aluminum wallet. It holds credit cards while keeping them safe from potential identity theft and is available in a variety of colors.
Many people are into their sports teams so you can’t go wrong with a sports-related item. A sounds of nature unit is a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day at work. Some fun gifts are those that are advertised on TV. Choose from a variety of “as seen on TV” products which are items that someone usually won’t buy for themselves. Try to match the product with the person’s personality and avoid any items that could be in poor taste. Always give the type of gift that you would like to receive and you’ll do well.
With the holidays just around the corner it’s likely that you’ll have some guests staying with you from out of town. To make the visit as comfortable as possible take some time to get organized for the holidays. If you have a spare bedroom, spend some time cleaning it and removing any items that may have drifted into the room. Think of your home as a personal hotel for your guests. Clean and organize a bathroom that can be designated specifically for use by your guests while they are staying with you. If you need to, update the shower curtain, rugs, and towels. Empty the counter to allow space for your guests to put their own toiletries.
Find a set of water hyacinth baskets to place fresh towels and supplies in the guest bathroom. If there is room, provide a rolling mesh storage cart which can be kept in the bathroom or in the hallway to hold extra guest towels. Place a bathtub caddy in the tub to make showering and bathing more luxurious and enjoyable. Get some small sized shampoo, soaps, toothpaste, and shower gel to place in a basket for your guests to use. This will help make them feel special.
The closets in your guest bedroom are likely filled to the brim. Don’t worry – simply add a small portable wardrobe closet or garment rack that will give guests plenty of space to unpack and hang their clothes and shoes during their stay. Launder the bedding including the comforter and purchase a couple of new fluffy pillows. Empty the bedside table and provide a small alarm clock for your guest to use if they like. Include a small laptop tray or table so your guests can use their computer during their stay. These touches will help to make their visit pleasant.
